why not just do the carbon fiber?.. I'm not understanding the point of painting it black first. Or maybe I'm just confused spineyes

i've thought about doing this as well..i think i want more of a silver/black combination though to avoid the dash being so 'monotone' with only 1 color (black on black)

billys car is very nice, although it's worth mentioning that he has the carbon fiber overlay (not real carbon fiber and it's 'stick-on' but still very good quality)

fair price.

my opinion: i don't get the point in buying an already customized car. call me an old school purist but i beleive a custom car should reflect the view of it's owner, not someone else's. smile

the only downside if you dyed only the dash is you still have the grey all over the doors all over your a-pillers, all over trunk, and on the sides next to the back seat, and that would just look kindda off. plus the inside of the car get hot enough (temp. wise) dying the dash in black will make it even worse [/color]

i have thought about that...but if you were really wanting to make it look complete and willing to dismantle your whole car, you could always do the whole car... thumbsup tongue
